Mumbai: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah on Saturday thanked Virat Kohli for his “tremendous stint” as the captain of the Indian Test team after stepping down.

Kohli’s decision to leave Test captaincy comes a day after India lost the three-match Test series against South Africa on Friday.

“Congratulations to @imVkohli on a tremendous tenure as #TeamIndia captain. Virat turned the team into a ruthless fit unit that performed admirably both in India and away. The Test wins in Australia & England have been special,” tweeted Jay Shah.

Last year, Kohli stepped down as the T20I captain and was then dropped as the ODI leader as the selectors wanted a captain for the white-ball format.

Kohli’s biggest win in the longest format came during 2018-19 as India won their maiden Test series Down Under. Under his captaincy, India also reached the final of the World Test Championship (WTC).

It needs to be pointed that Kohli has not registered a century in international cricket since November 2019. He last scored a ton against Bangladesh in the day-night Test at the Eden Gardens.
